A Moon of Rubber or a Moon of Gold
If you could choose a rubber Moon
Imagine games that you could play
A jump from orbit, whizzing down
to bounce right back up all the way
Or would you have a Moon of gold?
A trove of great depravity
Letfs watch its sunny midnight glow
and prize its Earth-like gravity
And what about a diamond Moon?
A present for a blushing bride?
But donft walk round to where the sun
is focused on the other side
And if your tastes tend to the sweet
A sugar Moon is what you need
Ten billion people licking fast
would not be difficult to feed
A Moon of feathers would be grand
A fluffy source of human pride
Youfd plummet in from outer space
And come out on the other side
